  • Animal has the first right of the way so respect their right. Forest is their home and we are outsider so we should behave like a good guest.

  • Drink less and use washroom before going safari as during safari, we will get only one chance of getting down, at central point, after driver of approx. 2:00 hrs prepare yourself accordingly.
  • Carrying caps, hats, sun-glasses, sufficient memory cards, camera sandbags to enjoy the safari.
  • Safari guide is a knowledge base so ask all sort of questions to take the knowledgeable information from him. Don't wait for him to explain by itself as they often remain busy in hearing jungle calls, observing safari tracks for pugmarks, planning safari drive.
  • Wherever you want to do any photography or watch something, inform the guide or driver so that they will stop or move slowly or position the vehicle as per your requirement.
  • Safari vehicles have to strictly follow entry & exit timing so always cooperate with your safari guide and driver and do proper time management.
